I found this video interesting. Bartholomäus Traubeck found a way to translate, into music, the rings and spaces of thin slices of tree trunks. Such a clever and creative idea.
Funny, how it sounds a little more dramatic at times, and then quieter. Seasons of plenty following seasons of drought. Periods of being storm-tossed alternate with times of quiet satisfaction.
What we are hearing, in a way, is how the tree reacted to the various environmental conditions it found itself in over the course of its lifetime.
So now I’m wondering: What will my ‘song’ sound like one day?
How will I have weathered the storms and trials of my life?
Will my ‘song‘ reflect an understanding of God’s precepts; a faithful and discerning application of His Word, regardless of circumstances?
Note how the areas of injury to the tree impact its ‘music’.
